READ 6708 - Literacy in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Classrooms


(3 sem. cr.) Today’s classrooms reflect the rich cultural and linguistic diversity of the world outside of school.

Education professionals analyze the reading and literacy challenges experienced by culturally and linguistically diverse learners including text complexity, academic vocabulary, and appropriateness of texts and materials. The focus of the coursework is on ways to scaffold and support all literacy learners, including English Language Learners.
